"TRISTA" elderly terrier mix

UPDATE  Feb 2016  "Trista is now living in a loving forever Volunteer MCAS Hospice Foster Home  - where she will continue to enjoy life and not worry about finding any new home again! 
YAY! for MCAS Volunteers and the MCAS shelter
for caring about these old dogs who come into the shelter:)

Sometimes, old age isn't "pretty" but I am glad that I am still around to meet people, smell the fresh air, and get some gentle exercise, and good quality care.  I'm a cool little dog.
Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

Hello there! My name is Trista! Are you one of those special humans who wants to help a mature dog? Well here I am seeking an empty lap to spend my final days in. I am at least 14 years old and have a full voice to sing my song. My joints are not as strong as they once were, I have some lumps, bumps, and some skin irritation. My shelter friends have let me spend some quality time in an office and they report that I mostly keep to myself but also get anxious when no one is in the room with me. The shelter is not quite sure how this will transfer over into a real home but it would likely be best for me to have a new family who is home often to keep me company. Any children or other animals will need to be respectful of my space and frail body. If you are interested in meeting me please stop by the shelter or email
